Just came across a greatly detailed tour description of Chausath Yogini Temple in Orissa… A rare tour, amazing !
“Each idol is delightfully posed, many with a soft smile that enhances their attractiveness even further. They are all standing on their own pedestal or vahan, which typically consists of an animal, human head, or demon.
“The variety of their hairstyles, weapons and accessories is incredibly interesting and ensures no two images look alike. It is the details on some of these carvings that have suggested to some scholars the earlier 8th – 9th century date for this temple. Unlike other temples associated with tantrism, there are no erotic carvings to be found here.”
